Another aspect of our direct support is our active outreach program to reach out even more to our communities.

A part of our outreach plan is to schedule a day to come to one or some of our communities to share information, schedule presentations, meetings, and work directly with organizations, people with disabilities and seniors.

If you are interested in learning more about our community services, schedule a presentation or meeting, give us a call at (530) 242-8550.
